LGBTIQ note concerns over Human Rights Action Plan

EQUAL GROUND however said it is unfortunate to see that regardless of the Government‘s acknowledgement to International treaty bodies and the Government’s commitment in the National Report to the Universal Periodic Review of Sri Lanka to eliminate discriminatory provisions set forth by the Penal Code (Section 365 & 365A criminalises carnal intercourse against the order of nature and acts of gross indecency committed in private or public, which is widely understood to target same sex activities), as well as guarantee non-discrimination on the basis of Sexual Orientation, the NHRAP 2017-2021 has failed to follow up by not including Sexual Orientation as a basis for protection against discrimination in the fundamental rights chapter of the constitution.“We welcome the advancement to Sri Lankan citizens’ human rights protections today and commend in particular our government’s commitment to protecting those discriminated against as a result of their gender identity. We at EQUAL GROUND believe that all Sri Lankans should be afforded the freedom to live their lives without fear of oppression, violence or discrimination. This includes those who are targeted as a result of their sexual orientation, a group conspicuously missing from the action plan. The work we do everyday exposes us to the reality of those living under threat of violence because of whom they love. These are vulnerable communities that need and deserve protection from the state, to the same level as all other Sri Lankans. We hope the Government sees fit to re-dress this missed opportunity and to include sexual orientation where appropriate as a protected characteristic. Human rights are for all of us, ” Rosanna Flamer-Caldera, Executive Director of EQUAL GROUND said. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Questioning community in Sri Lanka have raised concerns over being ignored in the Government’s National Human Rights Action Plan.The Government published the much-anticipated National Human Rights Action Plan for 2017-2021 this week. Section 6.6.4 of the NHRAP 2017-2021 includes an action to eliminate discriminatory practices within the health care setting based on ones perceived or actual sexual orientation.EQUAL GROUND says this shows that the Government of Sri Lanka is aware of such discrimination occurring, at least in the healthcare sector. “We are especially happy to see that the Government has taken measures to protect the rights of Trans persons by including non-discrimination based on ones Gender Identity in the Fundamental Rights Chapter of the Constitution. This advancement would help us address the various forms of harassment the Trans community faces from society as well as law enforcement on a regular basis,” EQUAL GROUND said. EQUAL GROUND commended the Government of Sri Lanka’s attempts to advancing the rights of Sri Lankan citizens. read more

Mens basketball Ohio State hires Chris Holtmann as head coach

Butler head coach Chris Holtmann directs his team during the first half against Virginia in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., on Saturday, March 19, 2016. Virginia advanced, 77-69. Credit: Courtesy of TNSOhio State announced it has hired Butler head coach Chris Holtmann to replace Thad Matta, who was fired Monday. Holtmann, the 14th head coach in OSU history, has agreed to an eight-year contract worth about $3 million annually, according to the press release.The initial report of Holtmann’s hire was first reported by Adam Jardy of the Columbus Dispatch.“Chris is focused on academics, is a high-integrity person, a relentless recruiter with Midwestern ties and a proven winner,” said Athletics Director Gene Smith in the press release. Smith spoke about the importance of recruiting the Midwest at Monday’s press conference announcing Matta’s firing.Holtmann, who agreed to an extension with Butler through the 2024-25 season, spent the past three seasons at the helm of Butler. Last season, the Bulldogs finished 25-9 – Butler’s best record since 2012-13 – and reached the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2010-11 season, losing to eventual-national champion North Carolina.Butler finished with over 20 wins and reached the second round of the NCAA tournament in Holtmann’s first and second years as head coach.He was originally hired by the Bulldogs as an assistant coach in 2013, and spent a season in the position. In October 2014, he was named interim head coach when Brandon Miller took a medical leave of absence. Butler went 10-4 before the interim tag was removed on Jan. 2, 2015.The 45-year-old began his head coaching career at Gardner-Webb in 2010. His first two years in Boiling Springs, North Carolina, his team finished 11-21 and 12-20. But in his third and final year, the Runnin’ Bulldogs improved, achieving a 21-13 record and earning Holtmann a job offer as an assistant coach from Butler.Prior to being a head coach at Gardner-Webb, Holtmann spent 12 years as an assistant coach at Geneva (1998-1999), Taylor (1999-2003), Gardner-Webb (2003-2008) and Ohio (2008-2010). He was an assistant under former OSU assistant John Groce at Ohio.He has experience recruiting in the Buckeye State, as Butler reeled in commitments from Ohioans in each of its past three recruiting classes. His 2017 recruiting class is the No. 34 ranked class in the nation, according to 247Sports, and features 6-foot-6 small forward Kyle Young, a four-star prospect from Massillon, Ohio.In six years as a head coach, Holtmann owns an overall record of 114-85 and has reached the NCAA Tournament appearances on three occasions.Matta, who also coached at Butler, won 337 games at OSU, the most in program history. He presided over a program that reached the Final Four twice and reached the NCAA Tournament on nine occasions. Matta’s OSU teams won five Big Ten championships and won the conference tournament four times in his 13 seasons. read more

Nobody caused a fatality by having three glasses of Guinness drank Healy

first_img‘Nobody caused a fatality by having three glasses of Guinness drank’ – Healy Rae argues against new drink-driving laws Shane Ross rejected claims that the plan would negatively impact rural Ireland. Subscribe for more videos Source: Short URL You cannot contest scientific fact.Ross said that the measure was not “an attack on rural Ireland”, but rather an attempt to save lives in rural Ireland.He repeatedly pointed to Road Safety Authority figures that showed alcohol was a factor in one third of fatal crashes between 2008 and 2012.He said he wanted to see rural communities organise transport to and from pubs, but said he could not “give them a blanket three points”.Read: New development in case of missing Trevor Deely Share Tweet Email1 35,954 Views center_img By Paul Hosford TRANSPORT MINISTER SHANE Ross has been forced to defend his plans to automatically ban some drink drivers in an Oireachtas committee.Speaking at the Oireachtas Transport Committee today, Ross accused vintners of cynical lobbying against his new plan, which would ban those found with blood alcohol contents of between 50mg and 80mg per 100ml. Currently those people receive a fine and three penalty points.Ross rejected claims that the plan would negatively impact rural Ireland.“I know that a number of commentators, and some Deputies, have expressed concerns that this Bill would somehow damage life in rural Ireland.“I would encourage them to stop and think about this. By far the highest number of alcohol-related road deaths – 81% – occurs in rural Ireland. No part of the country would benefit more in terms of lives saved.I want to save lives in rural Ireland.“Support for my proposal in rural areas was, at 93%, a little higher than that in urban areas at 89%. The notion that this is an urban/rural issue is simply wrong. ”Ross said the Vintners Federation of Ireland had “lobbied often in quite a cynical matter” against the plan.GuinnessKerry TD Danny Healy-Rae, however, said that the plan was an attack on rural life.He said that many issues lead to road deaths, from road quality to upkeep of hedging.“Our roads aren’t adequate for pedestrians, first off. People aren’t allowed to cut their bushes, so they (pedestrians) are walking halfways out on the road.“And then you have the case where the fella is on his own side of the road after a pint or two or three glasses and some lunatic comes down the road on his own side and runs into him.“It’s the fella with the pint and they half pint who is blamed.”He said that “three glasses” in a pub was the “only option” many rural people had and said that losing their licence would be a “serious issue”.Nobody caused a fatality by having three glasses of Guinness drank.He said he didn’t believe that figures Ross presented were correct.“I have a good grasp of what happens around my neck of the woods. If you’re going to do this, you’ll isolate people further.”Blind spotHowever, Ross hit back, accusing the Kerryman of having a “blind spot” on the issue. He accepted that the issue of road deaths went beyond“There is speed on our roads, you’re right. There are holes in our roads, you’re right. There are dangerous black spots on our roads, you’re right.“But there’s also alcohol on our roads.“And alcohol is dangerous and it impairs. That is not an opinion, it’s a fact. It’s a scientifically proven fact.The blind spot you’ve got deputy Healy-Rae is you don’t accept alcohol of any sort impairs driving. That’s a fact.

Microsoft launches Surface Go tablet at just 399

first_imgMicrosoft stepped up its tablet game by releasing the all-new Surface Go yesterday. The 10-inch Windows tablet looks exactly likes its expensive and popular counterpart, the Surface Pro device. Only smaller, less powerful and way cheaper, starting at $399. It includes features such as a 10-inch screen, front-facing camera with facial recognition, USB-C 3.1 port, and an integrated kickstand among others. Source: Microsoft Mechanics Let’s have a look at the features that make this tablet all the more alluring: Design Surface Go comes with a  built-in kickstand which includes unlimited positions. It has got corners that are slightly round as compared to the latest Surface Pro and a user familiar magnesium design surface. It weighs 1.15 lbs, making it a bit heavier as compared to the iPad but lighter than the Surface Pro. It consists of large bezels surrounding the screen which provides a place to hold the tablet. You get wider keyboard attachment with these bezels even though they make the tablet look quite dated when compared to the latest versions of the iPad. Display The Go has a smaller 3:2 aspect ratio display (1800 x 1200 pixel resolution). Its 3:2 touchscreen makes it easy for the users to use Go in landscape mode for more productivity. It also supports all the split-screen and multitasking modes that are available in Windows 10. Processor It comes with Intel’s Pentium Gold 4415Y processor with a RAM of either 4GB or 8GB. It provides storage of 64GB  eMMC or a 128GB SSD. Its processor is a dual-core seventh-generation model. According to Microsoft, this was chosen as it is able to provide the right balance between performance, battery life, and thermal properties which allows for a thin, fanless design. Battery Microsoft Surface Go has a USB-C 3.1 port which is Microsoft’s signature surface connector. This helps charge the tablet along with outputting video and data to external devices. Microsoft says the Surface Go tablet comes with up to nine hours of battery life. Additional Features Operating System: Go Tablet runs Windows 10 with S mode enabled. With Go, you can access only Edge browser and apps that are available in the Microsoft Store. Keyboard: The Surface Go consists of an additional keyboard cover which is available in four different colors, and can work with an optional Surface Pen. The Surface Go’s Type Cover provides “laptop-class typing” that comes with a scissor-key mechanism as well as 1 mm of key travel. The trackpad is much larger than the trackpad on the current Type Cover for the Surface Pro. If you add the keyboard, it will increase the price of the Go tablet to $99 or $129 ( depending on which color you choose) while the Pen adds another $99. There’s also a new $34.99 Surface Mobile Mouse. It is an ambidextrous, and two-button Bluetooth mouse which comes with a scroll wheel. It is available in colors like silver, red, and blue which matches the keyboard cover and pen. The new Surface Go is available for pre-order starting today and will start shipping in August.

Keylor Navas named among worlds 5 best goalkeepers by FIFA

first_imgRelated posts:WATCH: Keylor Navas makes his first official save for Real Madrid (then allows his first goal) WATCH: Keylor Navas makes incredible save against Bayern Munich Keylor Navas allows four goals as Barcelona crushes Real Madrid WATCH: Keylor Navas saves another penalty kick All season Keylor Navas has proved he’s among the world’s top goalies with his spectacular play for Real Madrid. Now, the Costa Rican keeper is officially in line to be named as the game’s very best at his position.Finalists for the FIFA XI team were announced Thursday and Navas was included in FIFA’s grouping of the top five goalkeepers, among 50 other football stars from all other positions. Navas’ club Real Madrid accounts for 12 of the total finalists, more than any other club in the world.Serving as a sort of All-Pro list for international football stars, the FIFA XI team is designed to honor the best 11 football players in the world by position every season. [Via Facebook – FIFA Ballon d’Or]Navas’ historic 2015 campaign has already seen him set a number of records for one of football’s most successful clubs. Earlier this season, he set the Real Madrid record for consecutive home shutouts and overall shutouts to begin a season. Already, he’s stopped two penalty kicks on the season and has registered 30 saves in La Liga.Navas has a 6-3-1 record with Real Madrid in La Liga play and is undefeated so far in Champion’s League, where he has yet to allow a goal get past him after six games, breaking the record for the longest span of time without allowing a first goal. Navas in contention for top goalie honors is the man who started over him at Real Madrid a year ago, legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas. Also in the final five is Manchester United’s David De Gea, who Real Madrid famously tried to trade Navas for at the last minute, but failed to make the trade deadline on time to finalize the transaction that would have sent the Tico to the English Premier League.The final FIFA XI lineup, including the top goalkeeper in the world, will be decided on January 11, 2016 when the Ballon d’Or Award, given to international football’s best player, is handed out.Notably absent from the final five goalies is Barcelona’s Claudio Bravo, who has allowed just five goals in eight games while helping Barça eclipse the top spot in La Liga. The biggest mark on Navas’ record thus far is the embarrassing 4-0 beatdown that he and Real Madrid suffered at home against Barcelona on Saturday. Navas allowed more goals in that game than he had allowed all season to that point, allowing a mere three goals in his first nine La Liga games of the season. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
